Go Padres!

I wanted to show you all a little something 
that I made this weekend.
I didn't have the file for this one but thank's 
to the amazing people over on the MTC Forum, 
I do now:)

I hope you all like it (at least the San Diego people...LOL!)


I want to mention that the original file/article was
by Sheri of the "Child Made Tutorials" blog HERE!
It was then converted to vector format for cutting machines.

In order to get the cap this big I cut it on 12 X 24 Bazzill
cardstock.  It's about the size of a grapefruit.

Hope you all enjoyed this little ball cap and don't 
forget that you can do this in any color and 
put on any logo!

Thank you so much for looking:)
You know how I love your comments so please let
me know what you think!

Go Wild!

Well...today is bittersweet for me...
I'm excited that it's my Joys Life DT post day
but sad that it's my last post on Joy's team...  
I want to give a great big THANK YOU to Joy for 
being such an amazing and generous person.  
I've been on Joy's team twice now and
both times have been Amazing!
Thank you Joy...I wish you all the best:)

I would also like to give a shout to the rest
of the DT..You are all amazing and Best Wishes  
to all of you:)

Now on to my post...
Joy gave us all these really cool metal
CD Cases and asked us to create with them..

Here's what I came up with


The way it Wobbles...

Close Up

Wouldn't you love to get your
favorite CD in a case all decorated
with a Rockin' Fox telling you 
to "Go Wild"??

I new right away that the "Go Wild" stamp 
from Joys stamp set called Lots of Puns was
the perfect fit.  I also had to use the "Musical Notes"
stamp from her newest set called 
Tag You're It Number Two...
You can get the stamps and the
metal CD cases HERE!

I used the fox from the Birthday Bash
cartridge and finished it off with 
some bright and shiny 
Royal Jewels...You can get them HERE!

I hope you liked my project today...

It's Graduation Day...

Hi Everyone...Thanks for visiting
my Joy's Life DT post today.

It's finally here!  The day that Parents and
young adults have been waiting for!!!
This week we are all doing projects
that have to do with this very special day...

I made this quick and cute project this week!

Close Up


I used stamps from two of Joy's stamp sets...
The first one is "Holiday Occasions" I used "It's and Day"
Then the "Everyday Occasions" set and used "Graduation"
These sets have so many ways that you can mix and match 
to come up with countless sentiments.
You can find them HERE!

I found these really cute jars at Michaels 
in the wedding section and filled them with
Black and White M & M's
and made the tassel our of twine.

You can make this whatever your
actual school colors are.
I found the M & M's at Party City...
They have tons of colors!

Hope you liked my little project today...

Hello Everyone!  
Happy Mother's Day!  

I had to show you this adorable 
purse that I made from the 
"Pretty Purses" collection
over at SVG Attic...

Take a Look:)



You can make any design you want with this.  
For this one, I used paper from
Graphic 45...Love it!

I love how the inside of the purse
falls open to three panels that you can 
design in anyway that you would like...
You can put pictures on each one or a 
simple sentiment in the middle..
The sky's the limit!
